qu'est-ce que la saponification

What is saponification ?

qu'est-ce que la saponification

Saponification is a chemical process through which fatty substances, such as oils or butters, interact with an alkali, such as soda or potash, to form soap. We specifically use potash detergent, which is perfect to produce soft and liquid soaps.

Soda is used to produce solid soaps.

Here we use potash detergent to manufacture soft and liquid soaps.

The chemical reaction forms a combination of saponified oils and glycerine. To perfect our finished products, such as black soap or soap-based detergents, we add carefully selected additives.

– Gellants or salts to increase viscosity

– Biodegradable sequestering agents to improve performance, conservation and stability

– Fragrances to add a pleasant or distinctive smell.

For the in-house saponification of our soap detergents, we use specific oils for their distinct properties :

– Copra oil (derived from the dried flesh of coconut): produces soap with strong foaming and detergent properties.

– Olive pomace oil (by-product derived from the extraction of pure olive oil, containing the pulp and fragments of kernels): particularly used to manufacture Marseilles soap, the saponified oils are derived from upcycling.

– Linseed oil: used to produce degreasing soaps that protect surfaces.

Most of our finished detergent products expertly combine several saponified oils to couple their actions and properties and ensure outstanding performance.

At Hygiene & Nature, we are proud to guarantee 100% made in Dijon production. Thanks to this proximity, we can supply products of unrivalled quality and support our commitment to local sustainability. Our soap-based detergents will take you on an outstanding cleaning experience, which has been carefully manufactured in the beautiful city of Dijon.

Switch to recycled plastic for all our containers

passage bidon

For over a year, after much research, numerous team discussions and real-size tests, we have successfully switched from virgin plastic bottles to bottles and drums made of recycled, as well as fully recyclable, plastic!

Our 500 mL and 1 L PET bottles are now made from 100% recycled material. Furthermore, our 500 mL, 750 mL, 1 L and 5 L HDPE bottles are now manufactured with 30 to 50% recycled material, and of course they are still 100% recyclable. This demonstrates our continued commitment to having a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly supply chain.

The recycling of drums plays an essential role in preserving the environment, conserving resources, reducing waste and creating a sustainable, circular economy. It is therefore essential for individuals, businesses and governments to support and take an active part in these recycling efforts.

By choosing these new materials, we can contribute to the circular economy and can reduce our environmental footprint.

Benefits of recycled plastic :

  • Promotes plastic waste recycling
  • Reduces energy and resource consumption (gas, water, oil, etc.)
  • Falls within the sustainable development approach
  • Contributes to carbon neutrality

Naturally, we ensured these recycled plastics were compatible with our products and we validated identical quantities to continue supplying products that meet your expectations.

At Hygiene & Nature, we are constantly looking for new materials, innovations, ideas in order to reduce our environmental footprint and so that our partners can benefit from it as well. We continue working alongside our suppliers to take it one step further…

Let’s create a greener, brighter future together !

Picnic between colleague


A relaxing moment before a well-deserved weekend.
The group dedicated to improving work conditions came up with a fun initiative: a friendly, relaxing picnic with all our teams.
Everyone was able to enjoy a relaxing moment outdoors, and it was a good way to strengthen relationships between colleagues and encourage the creation of bonds within the company.
Employees were able to unwind and have fun in an informal, friendly atmosphere.
